Spring 2007 not offered
Course Cluster: Urban Studies

The course considers the development of architecture, its theory and criticism, and ideas on urban form in mainly Europe and the United States in the 20th-century. The first half of the semester focuses on the origin and development of the modern movement in Europe to 1940 and selected American works before World War II. The second half of the semester begins with international architectural culture after 1945, considering both continuations of and departures from the modern movement to postmodern, deconstructivist and other work of the 1990s. The course closes with study of architecture in the non-Western world from the postwar period to the 1990s.
